Call to Civil Society Youth: International Youth Day 2021, Transforming Food Systems

For International Youth Day on August 12, 2021, the United Nations Civil Society Unit is celebrating youth voices. The theme of this year Youth Day is, “Transforming Food Systems: Youth Innovation for Human and Planetary Health.” The day aims to highlight the notion that the success of such a global effort will not be achieved without the meaningful participation of young people.

Everyday, young people all over the globe work towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Department of Global Communications is aiming to share these successes with our Civil Society network to celebrate youth and to encourage more youth to become involved by becoming the change they want to see in the world. Please submit TEXT and VIDEO responses (see details below) for a chance to be featured in our International Youth Day Celebration.

The deadline for submissions is 8 August 2021.

*We will try to highlight each project as comprehensively as possible. We also appreciate your patience in taking time to answer all questions. Please note that depending on the volume of responses received, we may not be able to share every submission.
